Fisichella is confident of racing

Giancarlo Fisichella intends to be back in action for the Jordan team at the weekend, despite the bang on the head he received at Magny-Cours. The crash in Saturday morning practice meant that the Roman star had to sit out qualifying and so missed the race because doctors were worried of what might happen if he received a second bang on the head. Secondary concussion can lead to brain damage and even to death.

Fisichella will still have to cleared by F1 doctor Professor Sid Watkins but this is not expected to present any problems.
